Photographer Jay L. Clendenin's 2016 Sundance Film Festival Polaroid Portraits

Los Angeles Times staff photographer Jay L. Clendenin used his vintage Polaroid Land Camera 180 loaded with Fuji's instant film when it was time for this year's Sundance Film Festival and celebrity portraits in an attempt to differ from the work of other publications. Before Sundance Film Festival, Clendenin had shot celebrity Polaroid-portraits during last year's Comic-Con in San Diego and Toronto International Film Festival.

This current love affair began in July 2015, when we pulled off our first studio at Comic-Con in San Diego. Wanting to try something unique to add to our digital coverage, I shot a set of these “Polaroid-style” portraits, which were a hit with our subjects.

Next we tackled the Toronto International Film Festival in the fall of 2015 with the process, to an even bigger response — word spread and publicists and subjects began asking to do a "polaroid" when they entered our space.
